Walking

There are many lovely walks straight from the cottage door, OS maps are provided in the cottages as well as some printed and laminated walk sheets with a variety of walks ranging from 2 – 12 miles. Walking is a fantastic way to explore the Ironbridge World Heritage Site and The Seven Gorge Countryside Trust have produced a series of leaflets which can be downloaded. The paths in and around Ironbridge are suitable for a leisurely amble or a keen hiker. Just a short 15 minute drive from our holiday cottages will take you to the Wrekin car park. The Wrekin is Shropshire’s little mountain which legends say was created when a tired giant called Gwendol Wrekin ap Shenkin ap Mynydd Mawr dropped a shovel of earth on his way to Shrewsbury. From the summit you will (on a nice day) get magnificent views, and no less than 17 counties can be seen -don’t forget your binoculars.
